You are wrong. You should check the facts before posting.

   Portable Document Format (PDF) is an open standard for document exchange. This file format,
   created by Adobe Systems in 1993, is used for representing documents in a manner
   independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems.[
   While the PDF specification was available for free since at least 2001,[4] PDF was
   originally a proprietary format controlled by Adobe, and was officially released as an open
   standard on July 1, 2008, and published by the International Organization for
   Standardization as ISO 32000-1:2008.[1][5] In 2008, Adobe published a Public Patent License
   to ISO 32000-1 granting a royalty-free rights for all patents owned by Adobe that are
   necessary to make, use, sell and distribute PDF compliant implementations.[6]
